Make Up For Ever C403, C404, C405 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C403 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark orange-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented and had full color coverage after one stroke. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy with enough give to apply without tugging but did not slide around at all–it was less emollient than other shades in the range. It felt like a cross between the Cream and Matte formulas, actually. On me, the color wore well for over six hours and left a stain behind, and the formula felt lightly moisturizing.

NARS Mineshaft, No. 54, Le Palace Velvet Lip Glides

NARS Mineshaft Velvet Lip Glide ($26.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, non-sticky, and light-to-medium in weight; it sat well on lips for the most part with just the faintest settling that was visible in the close-up but not in person (without a magnifying mirror). The color was richly pigmented and lasted for five hours while it felt hydrating over time. NARS No. 54 (P, $26.00) is cooler (95% similar).

MAC Khaaannnn! & Warp Speed Ahead Lipglasses

MAC Khaaannnn! Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “berry with red reflects.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark pink with cool undertones and pink and red sparkle. It had semi-sheer color coverage that applied evenly; it is the type of coverage level where the natural lip color comes through noticeably, so it can look very different from person to person based on the natural coloring of one’s lips. The texture was light-medium in weight, moderately tacky, but it was comfortable to wear and didn’t emphasize lip lines. This shade lasted for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating. MAC Itsy Bitsy (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Lilac Lumi (P, $4.49) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Potent Violet (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Bidi Bidi Bom Bom (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Dior Dolly Pink (453) (P, $29.50) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar).

MAC Live Long and Prosper & The Enemy Within Lipsticks

MAC Live Long and Prosper Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “icy rosy champagne [with a Frost finish].” It’s a muted, light-medium copper rose with warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage, so this one is likely to look different from person to person, as I find it looks like a pinker color on my lips due to the way color layers over my natural lip color. As a result, I do think it’s rather wearable on its own, but the sheerness would also make it work as a layering shade. I just wish it was described as a sheer product. The color wore well for three and a half hours and had a slight amount of settling into my lip lines. It was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC All I Want (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Lights Out (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Whip (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Trick (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

Colour Pop PYT (P, $6.00) is darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rory (LE, $35.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Tanarama (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar).

Make Up For Ever C304, C305, C306 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever C304 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, bright, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a creamy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation–you can see my lip freckle peeking through the color–and I think this was the result of the consistency being more emollient than other shades, so it didn’t cover as well. There was very subtle streaking, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance (only in the close-up photo). This shade wore well for five and a half hours, left behind a reddish stain, and was nicely hydrating. MAC Fashion Nomad (LE, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar).
